On My Radar

A new campaign just launched a couple of days ago on Kickstarter for Garden Dice, a veggie-themed, family-weight dice-allocation game. It was designed by Doug Bass, a semi-local convention/online friend of mine…

Over at BoardGameGeek, I recently stumbled upon an upcoming game that I’m pretty excited about. It’s a relatively light space combat game called Gunship: First Strike by Steve A. Wood and his fledgling company, Escape Pod Games…

Just this weekend, a new game went up on Kickstarter called If I’m Going Down… It’s a self-proclaimed “Dying Card Game” with a zombie-survival theme, except that in this game, survival is not an option…

I’ve been contacted by the designers of two upcoming games recently, and they sounded interesting enough for me to mention here on GamerChris.com. Both are lighter games, but seem to have a lot of potential as family games and/or fillers…

So, Essen is over for another year, and BGG has been all a flurry ever since. After processing a lot of the reports, looking at the rankings both from GeekBuzz and Fairplay, and even reading a handful of rules, these are the games that I’m most looking forward to trying and/or buying:

I thought that it would be good for me to start a semi-regular piece where I talk a little about some upcoming games that sound cool enough to make my wishlist… So, what’s On My Radar???
